Love it.

I think it's legal as long as he doesn't go too far out of the base line .. horizontally.

Though not an everyday occurrence

........ he "somersaulted" away from the catcher's glove.

My guess is that it took the umps a while to make the call was to make sure the glove /ball was missed.

Or, they Had to check if there was any rule against acrobatics. Happy

That player sure had the winning spirit!
